Listening to WCCO this morning, I learned that Hormel is doing better than expected in part due to strong sales of SPAM. Now while I understand that SPAM has been traditionally a staple for a low cost diet, I don't know that (at over $2/can, over $3/lb) it's really that inexpensive a meat. Yes, it keeps well, but given what it does to one's health, I think it clearly falls into the "penny wise, pound foolish" category.
Also, if you're bummed about never joining a fraternity, consider the Sigma Pi Alpha Mu "mosey" this year. All you have to do to join is come up with a ludicrous sounding title for yourself, and you can be the official (ludicrous sounding title) of the "SPAMmies."
No need to buy your friends or drink yourself to death to go "Greek." You don't even need to eat this junk. No embarrassing initiation ceremonies, raucous parties until the wee hours, or even criminal investigations. Just the sheer pride of belonging to the nation's premier four letter fraternity.
I'm the emperor of Sigma Pi Alpha Mu, and I approved this message.
